Time to bake


Something on my to-do list for next week. A little bit ambitious, I know, considering that I haven't baked for the longest time. But still it feels good to have a goal to work towards ;)


I'll probably try Martha Stewart's recipe, with the Swiss Meringue Buttercream or just simple raspberry filling. Those French macaroons in the picture look real yum. That's the factor that usually spurs me to bake anyways. The end reward :)

And if I do manage to bake one that looks and tastes decent enough, I'm gonna try my best to perfect it so I can bake it for special occasions. Sounds good ;)

Do you have any good French macaroon recipes, tried and proven true?

God bless your week~

Garden joy.




Taking photos like crazy in the garden :) And this is one of the results. Glistening dew, sunlight filtering through leaves, fresh morning breeze – one of my favorite times in the day before the busy-ness of life catches me up again. It’s so rare that I get a chance like this to photograph the flowers [in fact, I took this photo a couple months back] and I really love it when I can :)

“The earth [is] the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.”
[Psalm 24:1-2]

Hoo goes there?



Whoever you are, welcome to this blog, a collection of our thoughts on life, femininity, photography, music, modesty, and such :)

We really hope that you will find something on this blog that is interesting, encouraging, or fun to read for you:) And until the next post, au revoir!

[If you were one of those have read/were reading our previous clothed with scarlet blog, we just wanted to let you know that we have "re-started" the blog. Due to reasons such as the fact that it was getting really messy and stuff :)]
